Where to download oggs


Now I have recently noticed the popularity with oggs here. I am trying to find the best place to download them , and best tool for downloading them. I find low amounts on kazaa but I did find a server with a lot where I just downloaded them from there. Thanx for any info

i don't think there's any real "place" to get them, just gtk-gnutella, and setting the search file types to ogg instead of avi, mp3 etc...

how about you look it up on google, instead of just expecting someone else to explain it?

Thanx acid.

It's like a mp3 but they are a better quality. check out

www.vorbis.com for more info and downloads. I personally just heard about them and I like them a lot. I am in the process of ripping all my cds and convertig them to .ogg.

Ogg is a free alternativ to mp3, which is a licensed technology.

There isnīt any binaries yet, you have to get the cvs version. Itīs pretty easy just follow their install guide carefully.
